WHEN IT'S SPRINGTIME IN ALASKA (Tillman Franks) Johnny Horton - 1958 Hank Snow - 1963 Johnny Cash - 1964 Roy Drusky - 1965 Claude King - 1968 I mushed from Fort Barren through a blizzard of snow Been out prospectin' for two years or so Pulled into Fairbanks, the city was a boon So I took a little stroll to the Red Dog Saloon As I walked in the door the music was clear The purtiest voice I had heard in two years The song she was singin' made a man's blood run cold When it's springtime in Alaska it's forty below (When it's springtime in Alaska it's forty below) It was red headed Lil who was singin' so sweet I reached down and took the snowpacks off my feet I reached for the gal who was singin' the tune We did the Eskimo hop all around the saloon Where the cariboo crawl and the grizzly bear hug We did our dance on a Kodiac rug The song she kept singin' made a man's blood run cold When it's springtime in Alaska it's forty below I was as innocent as I could be I didn't know Lil was big Ed's wife to be He took out his knife and he gave it a throw When it's springtime in Alaska I'll be six feet below (When it's springtime in Alaska he'll be six feet below) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2011)
